Andrea finally gets a fair verdict

Thank God Andrea Yates's conviction was overturned, and she was found not guilty by reason of insanity. However, her ex Rusty still doesn't get a free pass in my estimation. First off, he drove her to the state she was in when she killed her kids. He isolated her from adult interaction, he minimized the severity of her post-partum depression, he didn't get her help when she needed it,and he insisted on havign still more kids when she was already miserable and overwhelmed. He is as responsible for the death of their kids as she is, if not more so. Secondly, how Christian of him to divorce her while she was in jail and get remarried.

But this latest is just adding insult to injury. I don't recall him speaking out in her defense, or correcting any of the prosecutors lies, during the first trial. And he still hasn't taken responsibility for his reprehensible treatment of her during their marriage.

Poor poor Rusty. Fucker. But Yay! for Andrea!

Next, how about a woman in the White House?

I don't really see what the big surprise is. For years now, women have seemed more serious and trustworthy than men in the public's opinion. It started with all the himbos in advertising over 10 years ago, and the role reversal of gender perception has only continued since then. Men are petty and cheat and lie, sleep with their interns (mind you, I'm still a total Clinton apologist) and take us into foolhardy wars. Note that the old saying, "For every beautiful woman, there's a man who's tired of fucking her" is never heard the other way around.

So if women are hoarding all the credibility points in the country these days, how long until this reaches the good and logical conclusion -- Madame President?

Oh, yeah, that's me. Thanks babe!

It's not just a job, it's an adventure

I love this, the idea of dating as a hiring search. As such, I seriously want to streal this concept to Apply to Be My Boyfriend. I mean, in three months in Boston, I've had one failed attempt, and one that's possibly advancing, but also possibly foundering. Getting scientific about it can't hurt.

Is Orlando Bloom the secret of TrimSpa?

My oh my, I used to love Keira Knightley, but this is just sad. Worth noting, however, that her face and smile are still gorgeous as ever. Just don't look below.
